I'm SO glad that I started my tour here -- this museum is much more than a hometown museum: They packed 10,000 years of North American history into their small but well-organized rooms. Displays were easy to understand (but just right for adults and children...More

This museum, opened in 2017, does a very nice job of illustrating the history of Native Americans in North America, with a special emphasis in the exhibits of recent history on tribes from this area. This is the first Indian mound I have visited. While...More

This city-owned museum was one of my favorite places in this wonderful part of Alabama. The personnel were friendly and gave out a lot of information. The museum itself is small but exceptionally well put together and the Indian Mound is adjacent to the museum,...More

This a new small local attraction. It was neat and the person there knew some neat information. It's great for school kids and adults alike just a small place but the actual mound is on the premises.

The brand new Florence Indian Mound Museum opened in January 2017. My family ventured in on a rainy Saturday afternoon for our first visit. We were in awe at the beauty of the museum. For a town the size of Florence, this is a very...More

The Indian Mound and Museum is an amazing place. Crammed in between businesses though beautifully done. The museum takes you back in time to see, feel and learn how our Native American ancestors lived in the Shoals area. The 71 steps to the top of...More

The mound sits on the banks of the river, somewhat tucked away. Still, it's not hard to find and it is definitely worth the visit. It is remarkable that this ancient relic of the aboriginal Americans has survived. One can ascend the summit at no...More

Very cool part of Alabama's history. You can walk up the mound for free. There is a fee for the small museum. The museum is new. We spent about 45 minutes here.
